VERY NICE, 350 V8, TH400, A/C, PWR WIN/LOCKS/STEER/FRONT DISCS, CLEAN & SOLID.
Bring back memories? This is it, the end of the line for Chevy's full-sized convertibles. The 1975 Chevrolet Caprice Classic was the last year you could get a big, comfortable, and flashy Chevy in an attractive ragtop package. GM discontinued it with the gas crunch and safety regulations of the mid 70's, which makes this very affordable and pristine classic a rare gem today.
The red paint looks great today. The big red panels are extremely well taken care of and give off a great shine as they have been protected in a garage most of the vehicles life. Then again, this convertible lived an easy life so far, and so it shouldn't be a surprise that the sheetmetal is also so straight. Contrasting white body molding are a purely '70s design element, but it works here, tying in nicely with the white top. Brightwork is a big deal with these '70s cruisers, and so it's great to see it complete on everything from the big bumpers, to the intricate waterfall grille. Of course, the wire wheel caps, with correct Chevrolet markings, just makes the whole package look amazing.
When a convertible's interior is this nice, and still appears original, you know it hasn't been neglected. The sun is typically harsh, but the seats are in great shape on this beauty. We couldn't find cracks in the door panels in the usual spots, and the red carpets are still plush after all these decades. As a top of the line Chevy, this one came with plenty of options like power windows, power locks, tilt steering column, and AM/FM radio. Even the air conditioner is still working to cool you off on a hot top down day! And for those few times the weather changes in an instant, the power folding roof will make this very roomy convertible watertight in seconds.
Under the hood is Chevy's trusty 350 cubic-inch V8. These are easily upgradeable, but that might be a shame to do on this one that shows all signs of being the original factory motor, and components. In fact, in 2013 the engine had a major tune up including new belts, hoses, radiator, and plugs to keep this classic running as smoothly as a daily driver. It's a plush ride that is supplemented by the power steering and front disc brakes. Plus, GM's TH400 three-speed automatic transmission makes it easy to spend the day going around town, or traveling long distances on the highway.
Beyond just a head turner, this one has been babied by careful ownership (and we'll give you the maintenance records to prove it). Hurry up before someone else figures out they can pick up a rare and roomy classic convertible for the price of a small family sedan. Call today!!
